I have heard stories of patients who live with life support system. Sometimes, the condition is so worse that the patient's brain is clinically dead yet the heart and other body parts still function with the aid of life sustaining devices. From experience, I have heard story of a distant relative in coma, who breathed her last upon being removed from the system. During her final day's, her body's waste being eliminated were dark and smelled really awful. The nurses really had to bear with the terrible smell. The family made a discussion and decided to remove her from the life support. It took less than a minute or so for her to pass away. Withdrawing and withholding a life sustaining device is a tough decision to make. Most of the times, we hold on to the possibility of our loved ones recovering from near death, yet it is also possible that by doing so, we are prolonging their sufferings. Termination of life sustaining device may have acceptable reasons but the decision to make is too heavy for the heart. What's your take on this? Are you for or against termination of life sustaining system?
